think, that president george h.w. bush is not coming. he just got out of the hospital monday. he has been having health issues. glad he's out of the hospital. but george w. bush, he was here last time, as was his father. we don't know why he's not going to be here. that is somewhat unusual. reportedly, bill clinton and jimmy carter will be here. that's obviously expected. another person who won't be here, mitt romney. that's not a slight, but it's kind of weird, because normally a challenger to a president is serving in some sort of official role in washington. they have a reason to be at the inauguration. mitt romney does not. so he won't be here. >> oh. come back and co anchor with me. >> all right. >> i like hanging with you. >> i like the recruitment. >> don't you guys love brianna? see? >> they don't know.

department under presidents, both george w. bush and bill clinton. why do you make these assertions coming back from iran? did you have high-level meetings in which you were privy to information our state department is not privy to? >> well, we met with a range of people. we met with people from the government but students at the university. we were actually invited by the university of tehran. we met with students, professors. we met with a range of people in iran, and what we come back with is a sense that walking in the streets of tehran, going to the university, going into the marketplace, this is not a country that is on the brink of implosion, that sanctions are somehow going to cripple and force it to concede to american or any other demands. and this is something that when we did the research for our book, we found historically, we have seen american so-called iran experts predict literally since the founding of the republic of iran back in 1979, that this political order is on the brink of implosion or regime change. this is something coming back from our most recent trip to iran.
and certainly in our lifetimes, richard nixon felt that when he had watergate. and certainly george w. bush must have felt the second term curse when in october of '0 , the economy tanked on him. you don't want to act like -- it's better to try to do one or two key things. with that said, i think this president like just the way eisenhower in his second term was able to talk about nasa and get nasa created, we might be able to do something with climate change, a large manhattan project like on a climate issue. he's not going to solve that, but there's a power to that and also travel second term. go to china. go to the middle east and try to become a big foreign policy president. he's getting us out of wars in iraq and afghanistan and eisenhower got us out of korea. i think ike's in the air these days. it's a -- eisenhower revision going on. >> douglas brinkley, thanks so much for coming in. >> the connections to the past and past presidents is always so fun it look at and so amazing how there are so many similarities. when we get back, we'll have the latest news of the day, of course, plus a beh
with fellow texan george w. bush but it could have meant that he didn't have to end up in the oprah chair at this point. and that's sat because a lot of people in my family who would have been willing to love lance armstrong no matter what because of the work he did on cancer, it was very painful to see last night, not because he cheated, but because he didn't quite get the equation of what he meant to people. and if he did, it's not only that he wouldn't have acted this way in the last several years, he would never have responded to the questions like he did last night. >> we're going to be watching part two on this interview with lance armstrong. now that he's come clean, could he face criminal charges for coming clean? we're going to take a look at what could be next for lance armstrong. >>> and after last night's interview, live strong gave the following statement. we at the live strong foundation are disappoint by the news that lance armstrong misled people during and after his cycling career, even us. in the wake of our disappointment, we also express our gratitude to lance as a sur
